Why I Got Into Freelancing
You could say I’m fairly new to freelancing.
It was in April 2014 that I left my 12-year career in project management after being stressed out and unhappy for what felt like the longest of times.
Between the daily commute, working in an office, and office politics, I felt like I was going mad. And then there was the job itself. Struggling with chronic anxiety my physical health started to take a dive, and so I took matters into my own hands and plunged… right into unemployment. Read More

Today’s post is an extra-special instalment of the F.I.T.S. (Freelancer In The Spotlight) Series on Wording Well, and the “Freelancer In The Spotlight” today is DD, who is addicted to heroin. (Hey, some freelancers have posed nude, so don’t judge…)
Rather than have her write the post in the same style of past FITS posts, I decided to ask her a few questions.
First, let’s meet DD.
Who is DD?
DD is short for Deemster Diva. She’s probably the most productive drug addict I know… not that I know that many… anymore… 😉
We will simply know her as DD.
I’ve had many conversations with her via email, and I don’t judge her for the drugs she chooses to do. She’s still a person, and she’s a freelancer, too.
Kinda makes for an interesting scenario, don’tcha think?
Now please welcome DD to center stage, and listen to her answer a few questions. Read More
Here is another entry in the F.I.T.S. (Freelancer In The Spotlight) Series on Wording Well.
The “Freelancer In The Spotlight” today is Deevra Norling.
Deevra started off with a national diploma in public relations and what followed was a varied career path that included a short stint at Reader’s Digest as editor of the staff newsletter, followed by many years working as an executive assistant in the non-profit sector, before moving back into the corporate world as a marketing brand manager.
Now please welcome Deevra Norling to center stage.
Take it away, Deevra!
Why I Took the Leap into Freelancing
Misery. Well, that’s what drove me to quit my job and find another way to live. I hated working for a boss, the 9-5, the office politics, performance appraisals, driving to the same place and sitting at the same desk every day. I am a free spirit and that means I like doing my own thing. Freedom is important to me. Read More
